Tesla Chief Designer: Model E Expected to Make Worldwide Debut at 2015 Detroit Auto Show
In an exclusive interview with Autobild, Tesla chief designer Franz von Holzhausen revealed that Tesla Motors will most likely unveil its highly anticipated Model E to the world at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS).
Via Google translate, here’s what von Holzhausen stated in regards to when the world will first see the Model E:
“Probably at the show in Detroit beginning in 2015.”
We still believe that the Model E won’t launch for public sales until 2017, but boy are we eager to catch a glimpse of it come 2015.
On the topic of Model E design, von Holzhausen commented (again via Google translate):
“The model leads Tesla to a new level. The car will show what we are about: to build electric cars for the masses. It is not a small model S, we do not want a unit face like Audi.”
von Holzhausen stated that the Model E won’t have crazy styling like the BMW i3, so expect it to be somewhat conventional looking, as the Model S is, but to be uniquely different from the S and X.
